Part of my role is to educate organizational leaders about the benefits of creating positive and resilient work cultures, which is the primary reason why I started Tackle Tuesday.
My mission is to improve people’s lives by transforming one workplace at a time. Moving away from a climate of command and control, towards a climate of possibility.
But how do you transform workplaces into environments that are inspiring, mot...
For the first episode, I decided not to use this as an opportunity to formally introduce myself and talk about why I started this podcast series. Initially this was a live webcast, but I decided to convert it into a podcast to make it more accessible for my listeners.

How many of us actually explore why we want to become a manager before leaping into the role? In today's episode, we will explore five critical questions that we all need to answer before going for that promotion.
FIVE CRITICAL QUESTIONS
1. I am an individual contributor who has fulfilled my potential and I am looking for a new challenge that will support my personal and professional growth.
As more women enter the workforce and into formal leadership positions, we find ourselves searching for a way to lead that is authentic to our true selves.
Authentic means to live your life according to the needs of our inner being, rather than the demands placed on us by someone else. Your authentic approach to leading yourself and others has to align with your passion and purpose.

Succession planning involves having the right people at the right time to fill critical positions in your organization, but yet many organizations don’t have a succession management process in place.
From my experience, I have witnessed organizational cultures degenerate to toxic levels because when the CEO left, they took their workplace culture with them. They didn’t think about or plan for a successor, which left the ...
